Another member of the permanent collection over at 52teas is the Pomegranate Black Tea. Need I say more than I clearly see why it's worthy of being permanently added to the list of available teas from Franks continuing experiment?

|*Flavor, Aroma, Boldness|
One brewed, the liquor turns to a slightly dark amber hue. The aroma from the spent leaves and liquor are brisker and less sweet than that of the dry leaves.
The flavor is much less astringent than I expected. While there is a slight dryness that persists on the outer edges of the tongue there's a lingering sweetness through the tail. Unexpectedly there's no real tartness such as you would get with an actual pomegranate, but I think it would have destroyed this tea.
As is, I think this tea is wonderful. I would recommend it to fans of fruit teas and of lighter Indian or Sri Lankan black teas.
